Love Making Dances Class

Last night we had our first Love Making Dances Class at Solstice Studio.

There is warmth in my body.  My muscles feel supple.  My feet are relaxed and held by the tremendous Earth.  I feel a profound innocence in our circle as we stand here with closed eyes.  We’ve been dancing the past 50 minutes and here in the silence between songs we are seemingly still.  Our breath is deep and in harmony with the rhythms we have just been hearing.  The taste in my mouth has become sweet.  My mind is clear and gentle with me.  My intuition is tuned to high and the things in my life that I desire to serve are present and simple… touch and move people to experience love and awe.

The music starts, Miriam Makeba sings with us through the speakers.  We sway our hips side to side and drop our heels down into the Earth.  We are harvesting from the land.  We could be transported from the inncense and latern lights in this manhattan Solstice Studio to the sunny artichoke fields of California, or the sandy gardens in Dakar, Senegal where I danced years ago.  This is the universal body bowing to the Earth and harvesting that which nourishes us.  I am not really “teaching” these steps.  I am remembering from one culture to the next, and pointing out the instincts we embody.  We know ourselves more deeply when we dance our dances.  Planting, harvesting, coming of age, courting, mating, birting, healing, dying… Love, makes all these dances for us.

I open the circle to ask the dancers why they have come.  A man speaks about watching the children dance at a party.  As he speaks he starts dancing, his excitement cannot be hidden.   “I want to be free like the child,” he says.

I look around the circle.  We are big kids here tonight with such laughter in our eyes.

Everything seems possible in this vibrant space.  The fatigue has dissolved.  It feels like a first date with God/Goddess. I am giddy.  I can’t wait to be touched and yet I am, every part of my body is touched by Life.

Bliss in the Sun
